    Here's a stock I carved up over the past year or so. I found this piece of wood as a return at a lumber yard about 7-8 years ago. I asked the guy in the yard about it and he said it had been returned because it had too much figure for the job the customer was working on. First thing I thought was, That would make a nice stock. finally got around to finishing it a couple months ago.

    I fit it around a 1917 Enfield in 338 WM that I purchased a while back. I usually do all the work on the receiver and barrel, but this one was done up in an OK fashion already. Just had to repair a botched bolt handle job on it.

    She's gorgeous ... and yes .... from what I've heard, it will shoot well with you on the butt end, and your hand loading expertise. Can't wait for the follow up showing those 1 hole groups.

    Thanks man.

    You have a good eye. That is Paulownia wood. It's a LV gun. The stock came in at 18 ounces so Bruno didn't have any problems getting it to make weight. Action is glued. No pillars or screws.

    I'm happy with how it turned out. I like how the black accents in the wood are working with the other black parts. Dave suggested it.

    I made a time lapse video of this stock being made. I'm no Doan Trevor or Joel Russo, but it was only my first stock carved by hand! Maybe someday! Hope this is OK on this thread!

    I’m lame and like a camo stock and ALL metal matte black to include scope and rings. But, that sir, is one beautiful rifle!
